As a nation, we need to look at how we are providing treatment and recovery support to those struggling with this disease. While some of the medications approved to treat addiction have been abused or misused, there are non-addictive options including naltrexone and its extended-release formulation
This is a perfect example of local media being spread too thin; while everyone was focused on West Virginia's water crisis, a smaller-yet-still-important water crisis was almost completely ignored.
In early 2015 Kentucky shocked the nation by becoming the first Southern state to officially legalize syringe exchange programs. Since then the news has covered the successful roll-out of a couple different syringe exchange programs through local health departments, but has also reported some backlash coming from the legislature.

We have a question on the board that says, "What are you going to do today to make a difference for your tomorrow?" We reflect on that every day. It doesn't have to be about learning, either; they could've made a new friend or helped someone out. But it is about them showing up.
At age 56, I get to be a rock star. In an athletic setting. Surrounded by some of the fittest and most motivated people I have ever met. All I have to do is keep showing up and let them watch me go at CrossFit with complete abandon. I have a new set of friends and admirers.
